not lasting long


Some say I’m obsessed. Some say it’s cool. Some say I remember that! My obsession with signs (neon signs, vintage signs, local signs, unique signs, traveling signs) captures a memory or feeling. While the signs (or places they represent) may not last long, relatively speaking, they represent memories that last a lifetime.
When i first started following photographers of vintage signs, I had no idea. But soon I found myself seeking out signs I remembered from my childhood. There are many I haven’t been able to find as they have been torn down or replaced, but the hunt for the memories of those etched vividly in my mind make the hunt for them special.

A few of my favorites:

Yale Pharmacy: many times we shopped at Kaplans, we got to stop for lunch or an ice cream sundae at the counter

And of course, every time we headed to the police substation on Shepard, I looked for the iconic cow to tell me we were close

What does this have to do with the practice of law? Absolutely nothing! But it’s part of who I am and how I came to be where I am today. Today, the view through the lens is my distraction (my obsession) for a moment in time.
